During the era of the NES, a game called Blaster Master was released by Sunsoft. It was a fun game that got a lot of praise but sadly not a lot of love. It was overlooked but it did have a legacy that lasted almost 20 years, spawning a sequel, spin-offs, and a re-imagining.

Joy-Con Grip VS Pro Controller: Which is Best for You?

Written by Anthony Talcott

I want to start off by saying that I bought the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and absolutely love it. But this article isn’t so much about what I like personally, as it is about analyzing the differences between the Joy-Con Grip and the Pro Controller. And so, I have broken up my review of these two controllers into several categories: Comfort, Mobility, and Battery Life.

SwitchChat: CND Puts It All on the Line

cnd-1For nearly a month now, a YouTuber called CND has been lining up every day in front of the Nintendo NY store in his quest to get a Nintendo Switch.

That doesn’t just apply to criticism of my own work, but of things I personally appreciate and support.

While these are all ubiquitous on the internet, sometimes I find them in such concentration that I just can’t idly watch the misinformation spread. And right now, a great abundance of this misinformation is being spread about the Nintendo Switch. So much so, that I feel compelled to write a series of articles rebutting as much of it as I can – starting right here. Continue reading “There Are No “Hidden Costs” to the Nintendo Switch”
